Description

The science data frame has 1385 rows and 7 columns.

The data are on attitudes to science, from a survey where there were results from 20 classes in private schools and 46 classes in public schools.

Usage

science

Format

This data frame contains the following columns:

State

a factor with levels ACT Australian Capital Territory, NSW New South Wales

PrivPub

a factor with levels private school, public school

school

a factor, coded to identify the school

class

a factor, coded to identify the class

sex

a factor with levels f, m

like

a summary score based on two of the questions, on a scale from 1 (dislike) to 12 (like)

Class

a factor with levels corresponding to each class
